Young Thug Facing New Charges In RICO Case

Young Thug Slapped With New Charges Amid Rico Case,The charges Involve Possession Of G*ns

In his RICO indictment, Young Thug faces further accusations. Fulton County investigators filed new accusations against the Atlanta rapper, whose actual name is Jeffery Williams, and four of his other suspected YSL associates as part of a large racketeering and street gang investigation.

Thug is now suspected of unlawfully owning many g**s, including a modified machine gun, as well as street gang activities and narcotics trafficking, according to FOX 5.

The latest accusations stemmed from what detectives discovered when Thug was arrested on the previous indictment on May 9 at his home in Atlanta, according to officials.

Brian Steel, Thug's attorney, maintains his client's innocence. Steel told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, "Mr. Williams has committed absolutely no crimes." "We can't afford to wait for a trial date."

Martinez Arnold, alias Duke, and Deamonte Kendrick, aka Yak Gotti, are also charged with criminal street gang activities, violating the Georgia controlled drugs act, possessing a handgun while committing a felony, and possessing a machine gun.

In connection with the killing of Shymel Drinks on March 18, Shannon Stillwell and Quamarvious Nichols were charged with one additional count of possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.

Thug and 27 others, including Gunna, were named in an 88-page indictment as members of Young Slime Life, a gang with ties to the Bloods. Prosecutors claim that YSL has been involved in violent criminal behavior since 2012.
